    Answers To Every Beginner Thread Ever

    First off, you're starting to lift. You need a good program, a basic beginner program is easily the best choice and will yield the best results (Two highly acclaimed examples would be Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength or ICF 5x5 by Jason Blaha.) Post videos of your main lifts (squat, bench, deadlift) and a member will help you correct your form. Lifting with bad form is practically the same as not lifting at all, it's useless.

    Secondly, nutrition. It's not super important for someone at an early stage in lifting to necessarily track macros or what you're eating per se, but tracking calories could be extremely beneficial.
    If you're aiming to gain weight, eat more, it's as simple as that (if tracking calories, eat 3500 calories over your weekly maintenance to gain 1 lb per week, so you put on weight while minimizing fat to an extent.)
    If you're aiming to lose weight, eat less, it's as simple as that (if tracking calories, eat 1750-3500 calories less than your weekly to lose 1/2-1 lb per week, so you lose weight while minimizing muscle loss to an extent.)

    Thirdly, supplements. No supplements are needed, some find an external protein source (such as whey) highly convenient and beneficial as one might not be getting enough protein through whole foods. But, aim to get most of your protein through your food. Don't focus on supplements for now, though.

    Fourthly, sleep and rest. Sleep and rest are extremely important. Follow your program to the t, do not modify or change anything "because you feel like it," it is designed that way for a reason and, as a beginner, you lack the knowledge needed to make a decision like that. You're just hindering your progress, this also means resting on rest days. Get as much sleep as possible. Do not get 3 hours of sleep a night, you're again just hurting yourself in the long run.

    Fifthly, pain vs soreness. If you're feeling pain, there is something wrong with either your form, the weight your using, etc. and you should post videos of what you feel pain on, and you may potentially need to consult a doctor. Soreness will likely be present in your first few weeks of lifting and may persist further, however there is a major difference between this and pain. You will know if you're experiencing pain.

    Sixth, gyno. Odds are you do not have gynecomastia. Give it time and it is likely to go away. Most everyone experiences what you are at certain times in their lives, it's nothing to worry about and nobody else is paying attention to it, unless you bring it up and make a big deal of it.

    Seventh, cardio/conditioning. Cardio/conditioning is extremely helpful, and will help you in more ways than you can think. Most, if-not-all, should be doing some form of cardio no matter what. This can be anything from running, riding a bike, or doing a clean circuit, any form is acceptable. I'd recommend doing this at least a few times a week, but as I said you can make it something enjoyable for you.

    Eighth, eating before the gym. Yes, you can eat before going to the gym. Dependent on what you're eating, I'd recommend at least 45-90 minutes before going to the gym. If you're eating a large meal, I'd stray closer to 2 hours, while if you're eating rice cakes or something small you can decrease the time drastically. You don't want 2 pounds of food sitting in your stomach while your trying to squat, think realistically and logically. It's common sense that you won't perform at your best when your still sluggish and lethargic from your lunch.

    Ninth, legs. No, you do not have "big legs for your body," they're fat. Do not, under 95% of circumstances, stick leg work. Suck it up, no one cares that you hate leg work, you'll end up looking like an idiot if you don't do it.

    Tenth, body types. Get body types out of your heads, for your purposes they do not exist and are fake. Stop worrying about your body type effecting you in any way, shape or form.



    If anyone has any questions that I did not touch on, I will be happy to answer them by later today.

    Actually quite enjoyed reading this, good post imo.
    However, in regards to Gyno "nobody else is paying attention to it"... people do, people will look and think 'moobs'.. The embarrassment of fatty chest/gyno is awful. I agree though, don't make a fuss about it and let progress sort it out, and if it is gyno... doctors.
    Fresh in the game, keep your calm with me ;)

    Great post brah

    Only thing I would add is about programming and stuff. *unless I'm blind and missed it*

    Like dont make up your own program and run a PROVEN beginner program like icf 5x5, stronglifts 5x5, fierce 5 etc.
    or if they want to do powerlifting instead of bodybuilding do something like PTW's novice program or switch the ICF lifts to 3x5

    Edit: FK I missed it.

    lets be honest. People have made threads like this constantly but new lifters are still gonna ask the exact same questions.. 99.9% don't read the stickies and don't want to research for themselves.

    My goal in all honesty was to get this stickied so the Teen Bodybuilding section wouldn't be flooded with these questions anymore.

    1) No idea how many people have had horrible, horrible results from starting strength, but I can tell u there are a lot. Starting strength is not optimal for people starting out who WANT TO BUILD MUSCLE. Strength is a different can of beans, but I know most people like myself when started wanted muscle, and never cared about strength. The two are inter related yes, but a push, pull,legs/repeat or off, is much much better for beginners.

    2) Tracking calories optional? Tracking calories is the only way your gonna build muscle, if u don't know how many calories u are eating than how does one eat 500 calories above their maintence intake level? they simply don't. Tracking calories is always and will always be 100 percent mandatory.

    Those are the only things I didn't like about the read

    I really like how u say you do not need supplements, supplements other than whey protein are all useless. Creatine just gives u and extra rep or two, and for me and around 20 other people, all of us had about a 15-20 increase in their blood pressure while on creatine.

    I like how u mentioned about sleep, cardio, leg day, etc.

    Good read but the two things I mentioned above, I don't like. Good job none the less

    I was referring to building a solid foundation with the two programs. Obviously I wouldn't stick to one long-term, I just saw great progress on my main lifts with SS, and I did gain size. The main thing I was trying to get across with that point is not making your own program, or using a bro split. I know, too, that many people who have had rough experiences with said program also follow other beginner advice, such as GOMAD, that I'd highly dissuade from.

    As a beginner, most people aren't dedicated enough to track their calories or macros to a t. As one gets more serious about lifting I would recommend tracking, but as a beginner most people would rather just 'eat more' than track everything. I was sort of accommodating to people literally just now starting lifting without prior research or complete dedication in every way. On a side note, I understand where you're coming from and that's exactly why I wrote "but tracking calories could be extremely beneficial" and gave target caloric deficits/excesses that people should aim for.

    Thanks for the criticisms and in general though I appreciate it, srs.

    will be cutting from like 177-170 ish over a 6 week span after i hit 500 mid august.

    and then i will be bulking until my meet in december which i will be competing in the 183's. following that i will be cutting down to at least 155.

    end goal is anywhere from a 500-520 squat at 155 after the cut going at 0.75-1 pounds a week.

    Agreed, sadly though this has been made over and over again. PM a mod and state your case to why you should get stickied.

    So your 177lbs right now, and u can squat 470lbs right now. How much bodyfat percent are you right now?

    Also you should know that going from 183lbs to 155lbs, cutting 30lbs is going to drastically, drastically drop your squat strength.

    If you hit a 500lb squat at 183lbs, than when u cut down to 155lbs, ur squats gonna be closer to 440lbs. Dropping that much weight is going to be astronomical man. Like for me I am 182lbs right now at around 8% bodyfat, it would be physically impossible for me to get down to 155lbs. If your bodyfat is like 23 percent than ya getting down to 155lbs would be possible, but if your already pretty lean anywhere from 12-15% bodyfat, getting down to 155lbs wont happen.

    Im curious as to what ur current bodyfat percent is
